American Red Cross

The Red Cross prevents & alleviates human suffering in face of emergencies by mobilizing power of volunteers and the generosity of donors.

A home fire can strike anytime, anywhere. Each year in communities across the country, nearly 13,000 people are injured and 2,500 people die from home fires. The American Red Cross has launched the Home Fire Preparedness Campaign, which airms to reduce fire injuries and deaths by 25 percent over the next five years. By partnering with the Red Cross in this campaign, you will help communities like ours prevent such needless injuries - and save lives.

A fire can engulf a home in just two minutes or less - which means families must know how to prevent these events and quickly respond if they occur. With your support of the campaign, the Red Cross will canvass neighborhoods to install livesaving smoke alarms and replace smoke alarm batteries, then complete home safety checklists with the residents and help them develop a fire escape plan.

By partnering with Red Cross and participating in the Home Fire Preparedness Campaign, you support our community and provide families with the tools and information they need to prevent and prepare for home fires. Your gift will also provide the Red Cross with critical resources needed to respond and assist families devastated by home fires.

A Note About Volunteers:

We depend on volunteers of all ages and backgrounds to carry out our work. Volunteers constitute 98 percent of our total workforce; they serve as members of our board, act as instructors teaching lifesaving skills, participate as disaster action team members, office administrators, event organizers and more.
